Merino. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 12 January 1914
Merino. The annual meeting of subscribers to tho Mechanics' Institute takes place at R.30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 13. On the first Sunday morning of the year before the service at St. Peter's Church, MIr Enscoe, on behalf of the parishioners, 'presented the Rev. E. Schwieger with a purse of sovereigns, as a New Year's Gift, a small token of the love and esteem entertained for him by the donors, and their appreciation of his effective Church work. Mr Schwieger, referring to the presentation at the close of his sermon, feelingly acknowledged the kindness and goodwill expressed to him. Mr D. W. Brock, with his usual energy, has been urging the Telegraph Department to arrange for telephone service at all hours in case of special emergency, and if this can be arrangeod for, it will be particularly useful as a means of passing along notice of out. breaks of bush tiros, or a call for medical assistance in naseof accident or sudden illness. A paddock of about 20 acres close to the town bou...
"Sailor" and the Motor Car. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 12 January 1914
"Sailor" and the Motor Car. "Sailor" is a thoughtful horse. Most horses are thoughtful, but "Sailer" is more thoughtful than the m1ajority, or, at all events, looks it, whether he is patiently waiting for his master to dis charge or to take in a load, or is sauntering along in his own peculiar way quietly doing his daily round. But "Sailor" was ap parently thoughtful beyond the ordinary on Friday last, when he was plodding along between the shafts of Mr Bourke's lorry, which bore at the time-a dis abled motor car, evidently on the way to the "hospital" for yepairs. He seemed to be pondering deep ly on the predictions of reckless prophets, who are given to foretell the extinction of his kind, as re sult of popular, recourse to me chanical means of traction. "Sailor" reflecting on the char acter of his load at the time, no doubt concluded that since he and his kind went on, when "Some thing Went Wrong with the Works" of machines such as he had in tow, the said prophets were it bit too...
Portland Steamer Service. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 12 January 1914
Portland Steamer Service. '"Business people." says the Hamilton 'Spectator," "continue to complain of vexatious delays in the transit of goods via Portland. Several firmscontemplate procuring their goods direct through by rail, despite the increased cost." This diicoulty in connection with the transit of goods by steamer to and from Port lahd is a bad thing, not only for Port land itself, but for the whole of this and adjacent districts. which would both alike. otherwise benefit substantially by the building up of the seaport to what it should be-the medium for cheapest and most expeditions transit of goods betweeti the districts served and markets elsewhere. Unless an effeotive steamer stesice can be assured, however, the abblltion of differential railway rates will be of no use, and the State money being spent on improvement of the port will be wasted;
Lightning Stricken. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 12 January 1914
Lightning Stricken. Councillor J. Wilkie, of Leon ard's Hill, near Daylesford, was on Wednesday last working in the harvest field, driving a reaper and binder, when signs of an ap proaching thunderstorm occurred. He had passed "a large, dead, stringy-bark tree, by a distance of about 200 yards, when a great crash of thunder, accompanied by vivid lightning, occurred, and what appeared to be a fireball about 6ft long and oblong in shape descended on the tree, and shattered it to fragments. Fulhes so strong as to cause sickness in those who ventured near remain ed in the vicinity of the shattered tree for some time.

New Australian Stamps. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 15 January 1914
New Australian Stamps. I-"-I The now series of Australian postage stamps have made their appearance and show a great im provement on the late bewailed specimen. The design is totally different, and the whole thing bears little, or no, resemblance to the former one. The kangaroo has conceeded its position in the centre to a portrait of King' George V., and the outline of, Australia has completely vanish ed. The old stamp might well have served as an advertisoment to show the empty state of Aus tralia, and to give the impression that the kangaroo was the only thing of importance, but the new production is symbolical of an Empire united under the King. On the right hand side of the por trait is the ligure of an omu, while the left side bears the kangaroo. On each of the top corners the wattle, has a place, and in the centre above the por trait is shown the Imauerial crown. The two bottom corners contain the price of the stamp, and the whole is printed in the old colors according to the...

Rare and Interesting Book. Through the thoughtfulness and kindness of Sir S. J. Way, Bart., the Chief.

Grant's diary of his voyage along the southern coast of Australia in the survey ing schooner Lady Nelson, in the year 1800, when he discovered South Australia, the first land of which he saw being Mounts Gambier and Schanck on Docem ber 3rd. The book is a handsome demy 4to volume, which has been handsomely bound in leather in Adelaide, and is dated 1805.. It contains copies of Lieut. Graut's maps, &c. The volume was re ceived by the Institute on Thurs day evening last through Dr C. C. MacDonald, who wrote as follows to the trustees: "Gentlemen,-On behalf of the donor, Sir S. J. Way, Bart., Lieut. Governor and Chief Justice of South Australia, I forward to you a copy of Lieut. G...
Mount Gambier. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 15 January 1914
M1ou ut Gambler. Writing from Somerton Private Hospital, Geelong, on Sunday, Mr Harry Gavenls, a member of the "Border Watch" staff, who was away on a holiday, reports: -"I had a wretched experience yesterday, and as the result will probably have to stay in this hospital for three weeks. I was riding from Anglesea to Ayres! Inlet, and the horse shied at a stump or was touched by a stick, and fell over an embankment, with me underneath. When I got clear I found that both bones in my left leg were broken just abhove the ankle, and I also had many bruises. I had to be' brought in 30 miles over rough roads, and the experience was the reverse of pleasant. Last night I spent a wretched time, but to dayI am much easier. If I can possibly manage to get the foot into plaster so that I can travel sooner I willdoso." MrGavens'a many friends will be sorry to hear of his serious mishap, and will join with us in wishing him a speedy recovery.--"Border Watch."__.

Closer Settlement. Complaints of the System. Commission to Investigate. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 15 January 1914
Closer Settlement. Complalints of tle syste,,m. Coaninlsslon to Investitgte. We have no principle adopted in public policy for the develop ment of Victoria more essen tially important than that under lying the Closer Settlement sys tom in operation in this State. It is patent, however, that the working of the sytem is defective. and needs prompt amendment. On the one hand, we have com plaint from settlers that their treatment by the hoard is not satisfactory. Ir this complaint were limited to a few settlers, it might well be disregarded. For there are men who if they were given the best of holdings in fee simple, free gratis and for noth ing, by the Government, would grumble if the land were not also fenced in and shingled over, or at least wire-netted and provided with buildings, etc., free of cost. But in this case complaint is so general that it is reasonable to assume there must be solid ground for complaint in at least some instances. On the other hand, settlers on many of the ...
